The crystal spirit; a study of George Orwell by George Woodcock( Book )

64 editions published between 1966 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Crystal Spirit is a revealing look at the great writer and political thinker George Orwell, whose visionary work gave us the great anti-utopias of twentieth-century literature. Perhaps best known for his enormously successful novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, and for that other classic work of fiction, Animal Farm, Orwell's reputation rests as much upon his work as a critic of literature, of manners, of politics - in a word, of life. His candor, his penetration, his intellectual honesty, and his mastery of the plain style raised to the level of literature, account for his exceptional influence during his lifetime and up to the present day." "A close friend and colleague during the last decade of that remarkable writer's life, Woodcock was thereby uniquely qualified to delve into the complex personal history of the man. Interwoven with his own memories, the letters which Orwell wrote to him, and the published and unpublished recollections of other people who knew him, all against the political and literary background of Orwell's work, this intellectual biography is a general critique that traces the evolution of an original writer in his most productive years, and provides a sympathetic and penetrating analysis of his work."--Jacket

Anarchism : a history of libertarian ideas and movements by George Woodcock( Book )

36 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in English and held by 1,343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To what degree can anarchism be an effective organized movement? Is it realistic to think of anarchist ideas ever forming the basis for social life itself? These questions are widely being asked again today in response to the forces of economic globalization. The framework for such discussions was perhaps given its most memorable shape, however, in George Woodcockʼs classic study of anarchism-first published in the 1960s, revised in 1986 and now widely recognized as the most significant twentieth-century overview of the subject. Woodcock surveys all of the major figures that shaped anarchist thought, from Godwin and Proudhon to Bakunin, Goldman, and Kropotkin, and looks as well at the long-term prospects for anarchism and anarchist thought. In Woodcockʼs view ʺpureʺ anarchism-characterized by ʺthe loose and flexible affinity group which needs no formal organizationʺ-was incompatible with mass movements that require stable organizations, that are forced to make compromises in the face of changing circumstances, and that need to maintain the allegiance of a wide range of supporters. Yet Woodcock continued to cherish anarchist ideals; as he said in a 1990 interview, ʺI think anarchism and its teachings of decentralization, of the coordination of rural and industrial societies, and of mutual aid as the foundation of any viable society, have lessons that in the present are especially applicable to industrial societies.ʺ
